Step 1: You Will Need:

  • 300 g Carrots
  • 1/2 tbsp Ghee, Also known as clarified butter
  • 1 1/4 cups (310ml) Whole milk
  • 3 tbsp Caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp Golden syrup
  • 3 Green Cardamom pods
  • 1 Rolling Pin
  • 1 Frying pan
  • 1 Sauce pan
  • 1 Wooden or metal stirring spoon

Step 2: Grate Carrots

Grate the carrots and set aside.

Step 3: Melt The Ghee

In a deep frying pan, and on a low heat, add the Ghee (clarified butter) and once this has melted, add the grated carrots.

Step 4: Mix The Ghee and Carrot

On a medium heat, stir the carrot for approx. 5 minutes until it has softened slightly and is well coated with the ghee (clarified butter). Ensure the carrot does not burn or stick to the pan by stirring constantly.

Step 5: Add milk, stir and heat

Now add the whole milk and stir into the carrot mixture. Cook on a high heat until the liquid starts to boil. Then reduce the heat to allow the mixture to simmer on a low heat for 10 minutes.

Step 6: Add sugar

Once the liquid has reduced slightly, add the caster sugar and the Cardamom seeds and stir into the mixture.

Step 7: Stir and Heat

Keep stirring frequently whilst cooking on a low heat for 15 minutes, in order to prevent the carrot from burning or sticking to the pan.

Step 8: Add Golden Syrup

When the liquid has reduced to less than half the original amount, add the golden syrup and stir in. Continue to allow the mixture to cook on a medium heat and stir constantly, until all of the liquid has evaporated leaving a sticky but moist carrot mixture.

Step 9: Serve

Place the mixture in moulds or cookie-cutter shapes and allow to set for a few minutes before releasing them on a serving plate, then serve warmed and with an accompaniment of ice-cream.
